A group of Jews moved to Japan and got a Japanese style name, and their seemingly Japanese names are usually kanji transliterations of the original Jewish name i.e. כוהן (Cohen, a common Jewish surname) becomes 香遠 (pronounced as /ko:.en/).
Like the Japanese word for "park"? Awesome!

As a Jew who is studying Japanese, this is of interest to me. What would the surname Landau become?

thanks (: and it seems that your family name is Landau?

Landau's kanji could be something like 蘭堂, 蘭同, 蘭道, etc., all pronounced as /ɺando:/
I prefer to not be referred to with masculine pronouns and nouns such as “he/him/his”.
